    Need to ride before I buy.

    How does a fella who lives within a hour of Dayton, Ohio score a demo ride on a Hobgoblin XO? Does Airborne ever demo in Ohio?

    Thanks.

    There is an outdoor fest every year in Dayton at the Metropark, cannot recall the name, but last year they had Airborne, Niner, and a few others there with demos.

    I believe this will help;

    For any of you local to us in the Dayton Ohio area, Airborne Bicycles will be out at the John Bryan MTB trails this Sunday 6/2 for the group ride at 2:00pm, with four demo bikes for folks to ride on the ride if they would like. We'll be bringing a 16inch and 18inch Goblin, and a 17inch and 19inch HobGoblin. If you are interested in riding an Airborne 29er on the group ride, show up early as they will probably be claimed fast! Thanks!

    Looks like they WILL NOT have an XO for demo so ride the Hobgob and just think better all around in the XO version.

    Enjoy.

    Hey there, we don't do HobGoblin XO demos. We have a fleet of HobGoblins in the X7 version that can be ridden. The Geo and Frame are the same, so hopefully that will help make your decision.

    If you live local to us, instead of coming to JB and fighting for your size (since we are only bringing a few bikes so there's a chance someone may be on the size bike you want), you could call us (800-888-BIKE) and set-up a day/time that you can come by our office and check one out for a day or two or a weekend. All we need is a copy of your drivers license and credit card. We do that all the time and feel that's a great way for someone to really get to know the bike better than a quick parking lot ride or a few minutes at a demo event.

    Our office is closed today so call us on Monday or sometime next week if you'd like to arrange.

    Thanks!

    +1 for doing a demo ride. Just be prepared to empty your wallet when you're done because you're gonna want to buy one!
